U-6 in Wisconsin: 15%

Really neat interactive map (is THIS "Web 2.0"?) in the NYTimes shows the U-3 and U-6 unemployment numbers.

U-3 is what Governor Doyle and the Administration want you to hear.

U-6 is reality.

Wi has the highest per capita deficit in the whole USA, ($1180+ to CA's measly $584) so I'm surprised our unemployment rate isn't higher. Doyle's slash-and-burn policies are killing us!

Recalling him makes sense, as we'll send a strong message both to him AND to party leaderships. Interesting that Dems say "A recall is stupid/will help Republicans" and Reps say "A recall is stupid/will help Dems". Think they have something to hide? I'm sick of them not listening to the grassroots!, join us!
